  • US
  • 120 min

  • Directed by: Nate Parker
  • Cast: Nate Parker, Armie Hammer, Aja Naomi King, Jackie Earle Haley, Penelope Ann Miller, Gabrielle Union

Nat Turner (Parker) is a slave in early 19th century Virginia, used by his owners to encourage other slaves to submit, but who is plotting an uprising of his own. Despite the controversy surrounding Parker, the film deserves to be seen: angry, dramatic and bittersweet, it's a story that needs telling.

Eat That Question: Frank Zappa In His Own Words

  • 15

An assemblage of conversations with and live footage of Frank Zappa; the results are surprisingly open and erudite, with Zappa coming across as remarkably straightforward. Schütte gives Zappa a free pass on his more questionable sentiments about women and homosexuality, but this is a valuable and permanent record of the man himself, even if his music is too diverse to be covered in detail.
